Every coach has certain reasons for wanting to work with kids and coach youth sports. Weplay Coach of the Week, Steven Jaffe’s reason for wanting to become a coach is quite simple, but he absolutely lives up to his title with his group of young wrestlers.
“I became a coach because I love to teach kids everything I can and help as much as possible,” Steven says, “That’s the way my father taught me.”
Even after seven years of coaching, Steven finds satisfaction in teaching his wrestling team, Hatboro-Horsham Warriors Youth Wrestling, all of the skills and tools they need to be successful athletes.
“Watching my kids succeed out on the mat no matter how they do, win or lose, as long as they do their best,” Steven says, is the best reward he can receive as a coach and he has had many experiences coaching successful wrestlers that he will remember forever.
Steven is very proud of his team and expresses this feeling of delight by noting that the Hatboro-Horsham Warriors are doing well and they are each wrestling to the best of their abilities every week at practice and during competition.
“I can get a lot of info out to everybody in one shot and my parents can look at photos of the kids,” Steven says in regard to using Weplay as a tool for coaching his wrestlers.
Steven is married and has two boys of his own. His son’s are 12 and 7-years-old and when the Jaffe family wants to go out and have some fun they prefer camping and riding ATVs.
